Ready Mix Concrete & Value Added Products


Concrete is a composite construction material composed primarily of aggregate, cement and water.

There are many formulations that have varied properties.

The aggregate is generally a coarse aggregate (Rock) and a fine aggregate (Sand).


The cement, commonly Portland cement, and other cementitious materials such as fly ash and slag cement, serve as a binder for the aggregate. Various chemical admixtures are also added to achieve varied properties.


Water is then mixed with this dry composite which enables it to be shaped (typically poured) and then solidified and hardened into rock-hard strength through a chemical process known as hydration. The water reacts with the cement which bonds the other components together, eventually creating a robust stone-like material.


Concrete has relatively high compressive strength, but much lower tensile strength. For this reason mix design selection and the proper reinforcing such as steel or fiber is suggested.

The transformation of concrete into decorative concrete can be achieved through the addition of color and a variety of other materials that can added at the time of batching or applied during or after the pouring process.

This limitless array of possibilities combined with great durability and lower cost than natural products make performance based concrete an easy choice for new construction and renovation projects.
